    Default Maxant bottling tanks that have been used as wax melters by candlers

    http://for-sale.yakaz.com/maxant#lo=...0agdo0ubcdi6e4
    I see these for sale from time-to-time. I wonder if these bottling tanks could ever be made clean enough to bottle honey after they have been used for wax? If so how have you done it? or would do it?
    Having a decent quality jacketed warming tank would allow me to sell my honey longer in the year. I could keep more in the 5 gallon buckets, and warm it and sell it as needed. Of course, being cheap, I have looked into other options, but keep coming back to a Maxant tank as the object of my desire.
